no i dont think so but she so tiny and week she only weighs 22lb at 2years and 3 months

ask them next she has blood test if can do .DD was the same simple things would hospitliase her .Waswnot till she was 2.6 and I begged my sons paed to have a look at her .He took one look at her file and say something not right and loh and behold turns out she hardly has immune system and was using all he engery to fight infection instead of growing.

She now 17kg at 6 so is still on tiny side but so much better

My dd is 4.6 and only weighs 24lb she has had a lot of infections and hospital stays, she has just started to fight things a bit better but up to the age of 4 was a nightmare. She has had all the immunity tests so ask for them to put your mind at ease, my dd's were all clear not big problems detected she just picks up everything cos she cant fihgt things. She got put a small dose of trimethprim every day which really helped her, this is usually for urine infections but can be used as a barrier to ward off over infections, she was on this for 2 years and has just come off it in May and fingers crossed no significant infections yet.

chloe only just come off trimethprim a few months ago because always getting infections from birth and had a kidney reflux test but that was clear so took her of med for it

dd takes azithromax for hers regulary, but with her its catching things quickly that makes the differance

we home they wont do tests as say its because she small we still waiting for some resluts of wee tests though.

I would question why they wont do tests. We had a paeditrician at a localn hospital who wasent doing much so went bacl to gp who referred us to hospital in Leeds who agreed to do the tests. They were the ones who put her on constant trimepthiprim (her local paeditrician had never even heard of this been used to fight infections before they occur). Even if they all come back negative at least you will know
